THE BEST BACK TO SCHOOL DINNERS
Welcome to this collection of easy, simple, dump & go, kid approved back to school dinner recipes! I have 4 kids in school this year plus all their after school activities like piano lessons and karate, so I know how crazy the weekdays can get! I always love having a list of recipes that I can count on for a quick dinner one night, or something that I can dump in the crock pot in the morning and then it’s ready to go at dinner time.
I know this year is looking different for all of us so whether you are sending your kids back to school, doing online learning, or homeschooling, I truly hope this collection will help you.
I HAVE ORGANIZED THESE DINNER RECIPES INTO CATEGORIES TO MAKE IT EASIER TO NAVIGATE
- 30 minute dinner recipes
- kid-friendly casserole recipes
- soup & chili recipes
- Instant Pot recipes
- slow cooker recipes
My #1 goal for this food blog is to help families eat together. I think it’s so important to eat together even during busy weeknights. Maybe not everyone is there. Or maybe it’s just one of those nights where the drive-through or takeout is the best you can do (which is just fine!) and you eat that together at the table. Trust me, we’ve done the fast food/takeout thing more times than I can count or care to admit 🙂
The point I am trying to make is that it does not matter what is on the table, home cooked meal or takeout, and it does not matter if there is fighting (hello welcome to my dinner table every night), or if the kids are whining about what they have to eat. What matters is that families eat together ♥ and that you try and make it a habit each night.
I have made each of these recipes dozens of time for my own family and I know your family will love them too.
